Les Browns 6 Keys To Self Motivation

 

Self Mastery

One of the things we MUST alway be working on is achieving Self Mastery.

You must work on yourself continuously, never be satisfied with yourself. Always know that as you invest the time and effort on you that’s the greatest ability that human beings have above animals. A dog can’t be anything but a dog, a tree can’t be anything but a tree.

Human being you’ve got unlimited potential, you can put effort on you, and by concentrating on you and developing you, you can transform your life no matter where you are right now.

 

Stop Settling

Most people settle, What have you settled for lately? You know when you make an out of court settlement that means that you have decided to take something less than you originally wanted to get had you gone in to court and the reason that you’ve settled out side of court is because you didn’t believe that you could get it. Many of us are making an ‘In life Settlement’. We are settling for less than what we actually deserve. We don’t feel good about it but we make it work in our minds.

 

Develop A Health Plan

You can’t perform if you don’t have good health, your health is VALUABLE. Develop a health plan, a plan that you will follow because this is the only vehicle that you have to carry you through this experience we call LIFE.

 

Live Life with Energy & Passion

You want to make a conscious effort to be lively. In life you either ‘sing hello or sing goodbye’. You are either ‘on your way or in the way’. You want to smile, you want to be happy, you’ve got a lot to be thankful for.

 

Monitor Your Inner Conversations

The things that you say to yourself, you want to watch them and in watching them you want to take charge.

Short circuit and override that conversation that’s always going on, 85% of what that conversation will tell you is NEGATIVE. It will tell you that you’re tired when you’re really not tired, it will tell you you can’t do it, it will fill you with FEAR. So you’ve got to watch that conversation, and when you find it going on you’ve got to stand up to it and say “I’m gonna do this anyhow, I’m afraid but I’m afraid not to do it, and I’m not gonna let you stop me”. The biggest challenge in life that you will have is with you.

There is an old African Proverb that says, “When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.”

 

Know Why You Are Doing It

It is important to know why you are doing it, because your mind will say “Why bother?” “Why go through all of this?”, “This is too hard”.

Here’s how you can override that… Write down 5 reasons why you deserve it, why you? why do you deserve it? “What meaning and value will it bring to your life”, “what’s so different about you, that you deserve your goal?”

When you write down those 5 reasons, when you have those down moments and you will have them, When that conversation starts talking to you, and it will start talking to you, what you can do is, you can pull that out and read it and it will build you up. It will be your rod and your staff to comfort you through some challenging moments, because you’re gonna have some. Life will knock you between the eyes, it will catch you on the blind side and come out of nowhere, stuff you can’t anticipate. That’s why it is important for you to work on your self, listening to tapes, building yourself up, talking to yourself with power, feeling and conviction, building yourself up day in and day out.

    You are well liked Les – I have introduced you to all my friends and they love you here in St Albans. UK. We you tube you all the time. You have changed my life and I aim to see you live one day. Let me tell you just one thing in my life you have made possible. For 9 years I have been longing to go on holiday back to Florida. However, finances have restricted me that I only stayed in England – in a caravan. This year I am coming to Florida! No more money – just changed my mindset. It was hard but I dreamed the dream and am turning it into reality. Let’s just say I am nearly there. The plane tickets were booked in January- and I am working on the last 10 days accomodation in Longboat Key! I am still searching and saving for this part. You see I Followed your advise Les and I am so glad I did. Are you doing any talks from 18th July to 5th August – because I would love to be there! My husband and two children aged 13 and 10 love you too. Such great Life Skills you give us. This is just one way you changed my life, I am also put forward for promotion in my job that .. I now love. You don’t know my friends but they quote you and we live by your quotes. I stumbled upon you on you tube- I have a story that says that through my angels I was led to you via Jim Rohn! Thank you Les Brown! Thank you for being part of my Facebook too.
